Weeks before the scheduled start of Lionel Richie’s All the Hits Tour, which features special guest Mariah Carey, the musician has postponed the project.
“When you have been performing as long as I have, it takes a toll on your body,” he said in a statement to E! News. “Unfortunately my recovery from a knee procedure will not have me 100% ready to start the tour next month. I don’t want to disappoint my fans and I look forward to being back on stage so we can all be ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’ together again.”
According to Richie’s rep, the tour has only been pushed back until the summer and new dates will be announced. All tickets for rescheduled dates will be honored.
